CSS midweek sport got underway last week for College sportsmen with matches in volleyball, tennis and waterpolo.
This term, College have eleven teams competing in midweek tennis. Last week the two top College sides began with a win and a loss. The A1 tennis side defeated Burnside by 6-0 while the A2 side played some close matches in their loss to the top CBHS side. In other matches the top College Year 9 side started the term well with a very close win over CBHS 9A while the J2 side defeated the top Junior side from St Andrew's by 4-2.
Volleyball started last Monday with College having seven teams in this terms competition. The three senior sides were competitive in their matches and did well despite not having any training for this first round of games. The Junior A side had a 2-0 win over Papanui HS with Sumin Jung serving 12 in a row to clinch the second set, while the Year 9 white side defeated St Andrew's 3-0 with Oscar Harcourt performing well for the team.
For the second week in a row cricket on Saturday was affected by wet weather and only two College teams were able to play. The 1st XI had a reduced game due to a late start and could only manage 60 in their shortened innings. In reply CBHS 1st XI were at one stage 45 for 5 and were 7 down when they reached the target. Rupert Whyte took 3 for 8. In the other match the 2nd XI side lost their match against St Thomas 1st XI with Tom Burt picking up three wickets.
This week in House sport there are badminton, senior tennis and junior cricket matches. Next week will be the annual Golf and Tug-of-War competitions.
